|Yaki Salmon Avocado Donburi at Sushi Yasaka is seriously one of the best things in the UWS|
I don't usually travel more than 2 miles in Manhattan to eat at the same restaurant twice, but I do it for Sushi Yasaka.
A year ago when I first visited Sushi Yasaka, I knew right away that it was one of the best kept secrets of the Upper West Side. I was so sad to have discovered it so late in the game (actually J discovered it), and just when I was moving away from the Upper West where I was in their delivery zone!
I love Sushi Yasaka for its no frills and oh-so-fresh sushi. Okay, the super affordable (for Manhattan) price point doesn't hurt either.
The once empty sushi joint now has one-hour wait times on Saturday nights. Good thing we made a reservation on OpenTable earlier in the day and were seated right away! I guess more and more people have finally discovered what I did a year ago, Sushi Yasaka seriously makes some fresh sushi.
Don't come here expecting fru-fru rolls. Fresh fish is what you come here for.
